Summer is Gone.....

Although summer has officially gone, it still feels like summer, but a milder fresher version. So bearing that in mind I created this set of cards and hopefully inspired the girls at our monthly get together to put their own mark on their cards with my 2 original cards. I used Stampin' Up's stamps, markers & papers to create these. The papers were the retired Designer series, Subtles Collection, cut to fit on the SU note cards with envelopes. Both of these are a great way to buy essentials for card making. There is such a variety in the colours and patterns that it will keep you going for ages. I love the note cards....a great size, and a convenient & economical way to create. The flowers were created by using a stamp set called FLOWER SHOP, which gives you a variety of flowers to choose from....BUT the best news is, it has a matching punch so you don't have to cut them out by hand!!! Being Stampin' Up means the stress of colour matching inks & papers is taken care of & we were able to use the exact colour marker pens as the papers. I just love that!

These last two are the original two I did before the class and the others were made after the get together....inspired by the creation of the other ladies who came on Monday night.
I chose this card as we move towards the 2nd anniversary of my husband's passing which is one week today.....he was an amazing friend & I miss his sense of fun and laughter so much.
